ROBERT GENN- SFCA
The Hambleton Galleries are proud to have been Robert Genn’s first commercial art gallery in 1967, starting a 47-year long relationship with one of British Columbia’s most beloved painters that we will always treasure. Born in Victoria, his formal training as an artist included the University of Victoria, the University of British Columbia and the Art Center School in Los Angeles, California. Recognized as one of Canada’s most accomplished painters, his work is well known internationally. While his subjects are universal (he painted in many countries), he excelled in portraying Canada. He is perhaps best known for his work on the West Coast and in the Rocky Mountains. Robert’s technique included a tradition of strong design with patterns of color and form, with a pervasive sense of personal style. Grand themes are transposed onto small panels and larger canvases in a manner similar to members of the Group of Seven. Most of Robert’s later work was in acrylic, although he also did considerable work in oils, watercolour, and silk screen printing.
“In acrylics, what you lose on the straights you make up for on the corners.”
